bales, doves, totem
Baled hay in a Groombridge farmyard.
A flock of pigeons, most of which are grey, wheels over the edge of the Common above the London Road. Among the grey, some white wings catch the sun.
Unable to remember the model number of my printer, I scan the shelves to see if the cartons on the shelf will jog my memory. There are so many models. But I am helped by a totem. "What is the animal on the carton?"asks the assistant in the stationers. A group of about 12 different Epson printers are all labelled with a photograph of a cheetah. That's it I say and growl to myself with feline satisfaction. I shan't forget again. Until I replace my present printer, of course.
